I’ve been away the past few weeks, trying to come up with something great for this blog and it readers. … But I got nothing.

These past few weeks I have had to awaken to realities I knew existed but didn’t want to face. I had to break my broken record to find a new song.

I comforted a boy who thinks he’ll never be able to catch up with his sister. I raced with said sister and feel like I have caught up with her some, which makes me both happy and sad.

So I think I’ll post a few pictures from the past week. I’m not much of a photographer, but I love trying. These are all pictures of firsts for 2015. First floor of the creek near our home, first real snow, first run with the kids, first run after getting new shoes, first walk with the kids and the dogs and first failure at buying running clothes.
